After San Sebastian, it's time for Bilbao and surroundings to get its Star Wine List map. Star Wine List’s Basque country ambassador, Aitor Maiztegui, has curated a selection of 12 of the region’s best wine restaurants and wine bars.

“It is really exciting that Star Wine list opens its borders in the region of Bizkaia (Bilbao, Basque Country). It is a region with a great gastronomic culture where we can find a diversity of local products with an infinite variety of bars and restaurants. We are also in a wine region where wines are produced in very different styles and with autochthonous grape varieties unique in the world. I think it is the best way to know the diversity of the great wines and projects that exist and give visibility to the world,” said Aitor Maiztegui, head sommelier at the three-Michelin starred Azurmendi restaurant in Bilbao.
